The restaurant has an amazing position and view. The service is fast and very good. Food is very tasty, althought it contains no meat. Great tortilla (their specialty).

Beautiful place, surrounded by incredible lview. We were attended by a nice lady. We had cactus juice, banana cream with palm liquor and almond cake. If you look a typical village better not miss this one.

We turned up and were given an incredibly warm welcome, so immediately felt at ease. We were offered seats on either the shaded terrace or sun terrace. Both have staggering views. We opted for the traditional "set menu", which comprised a salad starter with homemade...More

I would not think that it's necessary to make a reservation, but it really can depends on the day. In case you would not find a table, you can still book one on the spot and go for a walk and a coffee while waiting.
